AUSTRALIA (FEBRUARY 13, 2019) – BlackMilk Clothing, the Australia-based online fashion house known for its colourful tight-fitting stretchwear products, has partnered with Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty to launch a new 19-piece collection.
The fan-favourite animated comedy – and its eclectic band of aliens and intergalactic worlds – will be used across the collection including on dresses, blouses, swimwear and t-shirts.
Available globally from February 19 (7am AEST), the full Rick and Morty x BlackMilk range is available via BlackMilkClothing.com and features the main characters, as well as pop-culture phenomena Pickle Rick and Mr. Meeseeks.
Vikram Sharma, Vice President of Cartoon Network Enterprises Asia Pacific, which licenses the Rick and Morty IP, said: “There isn’t a show quite like Rick and Morty in the market right now, in terms of the way it gets its young fans excited, engaged and laughing out loud. The BlackMilk team has done a great job in making the IP truly come alive.”
The collection retails from A$60 and can be shipped internationally.
